Thank you for supporting Rock Camp for Girls Montreal!
Rock Camp for Girls Montreal has been empowering young girls and gender-nonconforming youth through our summer camp since 2009. We have a BIG dream of expanding our programming to series of year-round activities, and we think it's time for us to dive into this new project. We count on your support to kickstart this plan!
YOUR MONEY GOES TO:
- Paying for an accessible permanent space where we can have an office and a hangout spot for youth, and hold workshops, meetings, training and other activities year-round.
- Paying a full-time coordinator who will be putting all of her efforts into finding us operational funding and a permanent space, besides working on developing new year-round programming and new partnerships to spread our magic all across Montreal.
- Paying for operational costs while we work really hard to get funded by private and public grants. Operational costs include Hydro, Internet, telephone, office supplies, meeting expenses, grant writing expenses, etc.
- You are also always contributing to making camp accessible to low-income youth and volunteers through bursaries and stipends. We offer partial and full bursaries. We strive to make our workshops and activities affordable or free.
We provide stipends to make volunteering accessible to more people.
We provide training to our new board of directors, as well as a weekend-long retreat, during which they do a visioning session and prepare programming for the year.
We provide scholarships to campers. We aim to increase the number of full and partial scholarships every year.
We buy guitars, bass, keyboards, microphones, drum kits, amps!
We pay for six months's rent for our dream permanent space, where we can have an office, a space for workshops, and an after school hangout space for youth.
We invest in our outreach campaign to expand and reach out to more youth.
